Currently we have paid out the $25 stipend to 4 of the hole adoptees. No further payments will be made. Several holes will be available for adoption next year.
Dave Mankus said the 2 sheds are stocked with blowers, rakes, pruners and weed trimmers which members can use to tidy up the green and fairways. Feel free to get these out to blow off the greens or trim along the rough.
Dave distributed a page of rules for LF Guests and their friends when they register in the office. The handout reaffirmed that the League would only have priority on the course on the Charity Tournament and the Championship Tournament . Normal League Play does not have priority and visitors may be on the course..

Bob McPhee was appointed keeper of the rules. If a member has any questions, or requests for changes, they are to see Bob.
What do your dues pay for? Your membership dues cover supplies, the coffee service, Adopt-A-Hole, course expenses, awards, decorations, the banquet and decorations.
In order for the League to continue to provide the services it has in the past, we count on the fundraisers during the course of the season. The ten dollars is not designated for the banquet. The dues plus the funds raised covers the many expense incurred by the league.
